Your Little Warrior’s Bed

If you can, try to make sure that your kid has a great bed to sleep in. After all, your little warrior is out there, practicing when possible and actually playing during football matches. So he or she is going to experience some really tiring days or even weeks. It can make a big difference to go home to a bed that allows your kid to relax and fall asleep comfortably. So make sure that the bed has a good mattress. You want to find a good balance of adequate support as well as comfort.

And make sure the bed is nice to look at too. You could look for some bed linen for kids which has a pattern or design related to football, if you’re kid would like that. Or you could go for a design that’s more relaxing to look at, or that ties in to some other thing that your child likes. This way, even when your kid is just looking at the bed, he or she will already feel more relaxed and peaceful.

Pests and a Place to Practice

Having a place to practice at home, or near your home, is something that your little warrior could use as an advantage. After all, if your kid wants to practice on a lawn or on a field, it’s best to let him or her do so. Unfortunately, pests have been invading even lawns and fields and there are situations where this can be a real issue.

For example, fire ants have been known to invade people’s lawns and yards. This is a big problem because if your kid gets his foot caught in a hole dug out by fire ants, or if he gets some fire ants on his shoes or legs, the bites can be very painful. So if you know or suspect that your yard has this kind of problem, bring in people to help you fight back. If you can bring in award winning pest control then do so. It’s much better to prevent fire ant or other bug bites. It’s much more difficult to deal with the situation after there has already been an injury.

Your Stories and Backing Up

If you’re going to be maintaining a record of your little warrior’s exploits, your data needs are going to grow very quickly. Back in the day, people were a bit more careful when it came to taking photos or shooting video. That’s because these images and videos were stored on film or tape, so there was the added cost to think about. Now though, photos and video are digital, so you can keep on taking photos as long as you have the space for it.

So even over a short period of time, you’ll find that you have a ton of photos, and maybe some video. So on the one hand, you need to make sure your available storage can grow to meet your needs. And on the other hand, you need to have a backup solution in place, so that you don’t lose anything. You can go with a Fast USB Backup type of solution, or something similar. The important thing is having some redundancy built in, so that you don’t lose any of your content.

Where to Stay for Away Games

Now, away games may be something that your little warrior won’t have to think about, particularly if all the games are held in one place anyway. This is usually the case for many leagues, though this will depend on the age of your kid, of course. As your kid gets older, the chance of having away games becomes larger, if the league in which he or she is participating is one which covers a large geographical area.

Now, away games offer a bit more logistical difficulty. But at the same time, these offer you and your kid an interesting opportunity to travel together. Just make sure to stay somewhere nice, especially if you can choose your lodgings. Now, that doesn’t mean that you need to stay somewhere expensive. Consider something like this, for example: http://staybellavista.co.nz/bella-vista-hamilton-motel/ or a similar type of accommodation. In fact, it would be great if other team members could also stay in the same place with you, so that it feels more like a team adventure.

Finding Reasons to Celebrate

It can be difficult for your little warrior. Sometimes your kid will be up, while other times he or she will be down. Some matches will be won while others will be lost. One of the challenges is finding ways to maintain the team morale, even when things are not so rosy. So it’s important to find reasons to celebrate. And really, there are many reasons and excuses to do so.

So for example, you can make sure that birthdays, whether it’s the special day of your kid or of other members of the team, get celebrated well. You can look at the many different and cool kids’ birthday cakes in Auckland for ideas of what to serve. Have a party as a team. Have fun, eat pizza and goof off. It’ll allow the kids to have some time together in a more relaxing environment. And they’ll also get to know each other better.

Overseas Support for Your Little Warrior

Many things are changing because of the internet. A lot of this is good, and people continue to find useful ways to reach out and connect at an international level. One way you can leverage the internet for your little warrior, involves preparation and training. After all, if your little one is going to get serious about improving his or her skills, it will help to have information and video to study. Ideally, this will be provided by the coach or other trainers, but that might not be enough. Thankfully, there’s a lot of information available online, especially video. The problem though is how to go about collecting and organizing all this, so that your kid can make use of it.

That’s where the international support can come in. You can go online and hire the services of a freelancer from the Philippines or elsewhere. Then, you can assign the person the task of looking for YouTube and other videos online, which have some bearing on football training for kids. Then, the freelancer can send you links to the best of the bunch. You can do the same thing for online articles, PDF reports, and other written information which appears to be useful and up to date. It’s not that difficult to bring in the services of an international freelancer, because of the availability of cheap cash transfers overseas. So this allows you to do more, while still having your time available to spend with your kid.

Little Warriors and the Elements

The thing about football is that the games do tend to go on, whether the weather cooperates or not. A similar thing might be true even for practices. So it’s important to make sure that your little warrior has the gear necessary to manage, even when the rain is pouring. That means a number of key pieces of gear are important.

For instance, it’s important to have shoes with sufficient traction, even under slippery and muddy conditions. Do try to make sure that the particular version you are getting will allow your kid enough grip even under not so ideal conditions. At the same time, look for the best outdoor clothing you can get for the circumstances. Your kid can wear something larger and heavier duty, when he or she is not in the game yet, for example. You will also want to make sure that your kid has a way to wash off the dirt, mud and grime after the match, as soon as possible. This will mean that there should be towels and other similar items, available for immediate use.

Your Little Warrior’s Online Story

It can be great to have an online blog, which contains the story of your little warrior’s training and matches. It allows friends and relatives to follow along, so that they know where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. It allows your kid to have a place to turn to in order to refresh his or her memory.

In addition, it’s a place where you can embed photos and video just the way you want to. And you can type out the accompanying text that you like, without having to worry about the length of your text or what it is exactly that you want to say. If you don’t fancy working on the design of the blog or website yourself, that’s not a problem. You can just bring in a web design Christchurch company to take care of those details. A lot of the support stuff can be done by others. What matters is that you come up with the content in the form of stories, photos, videos and more.

Your Little Warior and Meat

I put meat in the title, but really, what’s important to keep in mind is that your little warrior needs his or her fuel. Kids are already usually pretty active, and when you have a kid who’s focusing in on football or soccer as a sport, you need to make sure that your little one is getting enough of the good stuff. So that includes protein, as well as all the other vitamins, minerals, and more.

It’s important to make sure that he or she continues to grow up to have a strong and healthy body, and enough energy to last. This is important since the training, practices, games and more are going to take a lot out of the kid. So when it comes to meat, you can ask your Auckland butcherabout which particular cuts would be best for meals at home, and sandwiches outdoors. You can also ask what kind of preparation can be done to the meat, not just so that it’s good, but also to maximize the levels of protein and accompanying vitamins and minerals.

An Online Home for Your Photos

In this day and age, most people have a camera with them wherever they are. And this is particularly true when parents are at their kids’ football games or practices. There’s the camera in your phone, or maybe a point-and-shoot, or possibly something full-sized, or something in between. After a while though, you’ll find that you have a ton of great pictures of your kid in action, but those photos might be in a jumbled mess of folders and memory cards. Having the photos organized somewhere doesn’t just make for a great album to look at. You and your kid can also use those photos to keep track of how his or her game develops.

Many parents end up posting their kids’ photos to social media. That’s alright. Other parents, however, want to have their own website, so they have greater control over how the photos look, and how everything is organized. It isn’t really that hard to do nowadays. You’ll want to set up the website with some help, probably. In my case, I turn to a company like Hoopla hosting service. These firms can help you get the url that you want, and set up the structure of your site so that the content flows, makes sense and is easy to navigate.

The Right Home Environment for Your Little Warrior

Raising your little athlete requires the right ‘incubation chamber’. While some parents and their kids are all about training, it’s important to remember what happens off the field is also important. You want to create the right environment for your little champ to develop. We’re going to lay out some of the factors that help you do that.

Having a suitable yard or training area will help a lot. It depends on what sport your little champ is into, but most require a decent outdoor area or a large indoor room dedicated to training. Of course, you’re probably very aware of whether you have the appropriate space or not. Depending on how serious you are, you might need to think about expanding or relocating to a more suitable house. Check out this guide to Christchurch real estate if this is a road you might want to look at going down.

Remember good sleep and health are also essential. Your kid will not develop into a worldbeater if your house is always cold and damp and they spend a lot of the time sick as a result. If you haven’t already, we highly recommend investing in a heat pump. If you’re looking for a service you can use Christchurch heat pumps to help you find the best deal.

Of course, last but not least don’t forget the importance of maintaining a clean and healthy environment. Again, if your kid is sick all the time he won’t be winning any championships! Even something as simple as a dirty oven can be a hazard to your little champ’s health.

Welcome to Patriot Warrior Football

Welcome to PWF, a site dedicated to encouraging and cultivating a love of football in kids all around the world. They don’t call it ‘the beautiful game’ for nothing, and we here at PWF feel it deserves to be encouraged as a sport. Although football is hugely popular in some countries like England and Brazil, and it may be the most popular sport on the planet, there are still many kids in certain countries who don’t get many opportunities to play. This site is for them more than anyone else. If you’re a passionate football fan living in a country where football isn’t the dominant sport, never fear! You’ll find friends and support right here.

If you’re a parent trying to encourage your youngsters to give football a go, how can you do it – well, of course, the easiest way is to lead by example – have a game with them! When they see how much you’re enjoying yourself as you play, they’ll start to have fun with the game as well. Remember that passion for a sport has to be born from fun – you can’t force a child to love football, but you can create the right conditions for them to fall in love on their own!
